The lovely Kate from FoxsLane is this weeks theme queen and the theme she has chosen is My Collection -and I am sure she will be wearing a lovely organic tiara!
At first I thought... oh... I don't collect anything... comparing myself to those people you see on The Collectors where they have rooms full of stuff... then Kate suggested a few things and I thought Oh yeah- they are not huge collections as I am not really much of a collector - (I married one though) but here we go.
One of my only little collections ( besides fabric of course!!) is of items suitable to be displayed on the Kitchen Thing Dad Made. My Dad made it for my sister and I when were children and I discovered it again- (yes their was much squealing, and swooning and tears of joy) in the garage a couple of years ago at Mums place. It went straight into the car to be taken home immediately. (No Chef we cannot wait until next time to get it. ) We had to repack the car as there was no way I was letting him strap it to the roof!!)(Chef vehemently denies suggesting we strap it to the roof. Sorry Chef xxx)
I think it is (the cabinet- it actually doesn't really have a name if anyone wants to suggest one feel free) most beautiful thing in the world and it would be one of those things I would grab in a fire.
Not just any old tea set is worthy of being placed on . Enamel is particulary good and this set is from a shop in Sydney. It was stupidly expensive for a childrens tea set but its so pretty and I think its worth it! Look how nice it looks. Yes Busy is actually allowed to play with it. There are more plates and cups but they are in the sandpit...
